John Heard has passed away. Heard is perhaps best known for his role in the first Home Alone films from the '90s. 

TMZ is reporting that Heard was found dead in a hotel room in Palo Alto, CA. Foul play is not suspected. Heard was staying at the hotel as he recovered from back surgery, according to TMZ's report

The medical examiner’s office listed the actor’s age as 71, but other reports say he was 72. 

The actor appeared in both Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York as Kevin’s father, Peter Mcallister. 

His Home Alone costar and personal friend Daniel Stern shared a heartfelt tribute on Twitter this weekend. 

Heard’s body of work is impressive. Some of his most memorable roles were in the Tom Hanks film Big, in the Bette Midler movie Beaches, and in the hit HBO series The Sopranos
